Kim Kardashian arriving at the House Ear Institute in L.A. (4/18)

Nick Lachey tells the new issue of Details that Kim Kardashian called the paparazzi herself during a date the two went on in 2006. A calculated move to boost your media exposure? That doesn't sound like something a Kardashian would do at all!
When asked if the first paparazzi shots gone public of the duo sparked the start of Kardashian's rise to stardom, Lachey responded, "That's one way to interpret it ... Let's just say this: We went to a movie. No one followed us there. Somehow, mysteriously, when we left, there were 30 photographers waiting outside."

The 39-year-old singer implied that the now notable TV personality is the one who tipped off the photographers that day.

"There are certain ways to play this game, and some people play it well," he told the monthly mag.
I guess I should feel bad for Boy Bander because he got played . . . nah, I'm totally kidding. Don't let the man with the girly tattoos fool you. If Nick wanted to spend a quiet evening with a good, wholesome, all-American girl, he wouldn't have taken the most mainstream pornstar in the world on a very public date to a restaurant crawling with photographers. Sure, Kim's as focused on gaining publicity as she is on gaining weight, but let's not pretend that Nick Lachey of all people is above the fray. This guy sucked every ounce of fame out of his marriage from Jessica Simpson the way Kim sucks, well, everything that shoots cream or money.

In other Kim Kardashian news, she's officially a single woman! From TMZ:
Kim Kardashian is officially a single woman because the judge dissolved her marriage to Kris Humphries in today's court hearing and we've learned Kris walked away with NOTHING.
Great news for Kim. Is there a spot for "currently pregnant" on your Match.com profile?
